This report presents national statistics on federal aid to graduate students in the sciences and engineering for fall, 1973. Data were provided by every institution with a doctoral program in science or engineering. The characteristics of graduate enrollment examined in this report are: enrollment status (full and part time); distribution among fields of science; level of study (first-year or beyond); citizenship (U.S. and foreign); control of institution (public or private); and sex of graduate students. Data on types and sources of major support were provided for full-time students only. Postdoctoral utilization by field of science was examined in terms of type and source of support and year of the Ph.D. Appendices include notes on general methodology, classification of institutions in the survey, detailed statistical tables, and a reliability and validity assessment of the 1973 survey.
